April 1992, I think. That was the earliest Google found... I think it
was SLS from about 15 1200k 5.25" floppies downloaded over a 1200 baud
modem... Linux 0.13 kernel
5 months later I used it to train an artificial neural network to do
speech recognition for my 4th year project for my undergrad. That
process ran at 99.5% CPU usage for two solid weeks to train the neural
net on a 486DX-33. Worked like a champ. Multitasked beautifully even
then, way better than win98 or mac os-9 didn't years later...
I even had X working then...
